Evesham Floods July 2007

Of particular interest as I have family living in Evesham, albeit well out of harm's way. I was there for the Easter 1998 floods, but a roving reporter on the ground (my Mum) tells me these are worse.

There are a few photos of the floods on the BBC and Sky news sites, but as usual it's the blogs and forums that have the most extensive coverage.

A series of photos showing the rising water level:
5.12pm 20th July
6.28pm 20th July
8.03pm 20th July
5.51am 21st July

Some photographs on the ukworldweather forum. The helicopter shot on page 2 of this thread is as good as any you'll ever see in a newspaper:
Evesham Flood Rescue

More here at the Volkszone Forum:

A report by someone trapped in their riverside flat:
Trapped by the floods

And finally, a few photos taken by my Mother:

I remember the floods of 1998 in Evesham - wow can't believe these are worse. Water was practically up to the old cinema last time in Port Street did it get that far up again?
Great pictures by the way!!
